EPL: Mourinho Speaks On Pogba’s Mistake After 2-2 Draw With Chelsea

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, defended Paul Pogba after his poor marking from a corner led to a Chelsea goal.

Mourinho has told the France international, to focus on beating former club Juventus on Tuesday in the Champions League, after what he accepted was a “bad result” at Stamford Bridge.

Pogba was at fault for the Blues’ opener, after losing Antonio Rudiger at a corner to allow the defender a free header.

United went in front thanks to Martial’s brace, but were denied victory by Ross Barkley’s stoppage-time equaliser.

“Players make mistakes and I prefer to focus on the global performance,” Mourinho said when asked about Pogba’s role in Chelsea’s first goal.

“My midfield was very good. Paul was good, [Nemanja] Matic was good, [Juan] Mata was good, Ander Herrera was also in the game.

“The three attacking players work a lot – Mata, [Anthony] Martial, [Marcus] Rashford. The team did a fantastic work, so I will try to focus on the level of the performance and forget the bad result. I think we deserve much more than this result but this is what it is.”
